"Everything you've ever wanted is on the other side of fear." - George Addair

What matters more, heart or brain?

The ability to think, or the ability to feel pain?

What matters more, soul or speech?

The ability to know, or the ability to preach?

What is a pig but a young, mute child?

Is there a difference, or is that just how they are filed?

This thought may leave you stricken

Then ask, what is a chicken?

What is the difference in what we eat

That makes one flesh and the other meat?
